The Washington Foreign Press Center provided twenty journalists from eleven countries with a tour of the House of Representatives and a background briefing by its staff. The purpose was to learn how the House Foreign Affairs Committee works and how journalists can cover the House. The press gallery staff showed journalists the facilities and offered to press and gave advice. The goal of the tour was to provide a better understanding of the legislative process in U.S. politics.
